Vector Components Model 

written by Andrew Duffy

The Vector Components model allows the user to split a vector into its components, and practice finding the magnitude and direction of a vector if you know the components.  In the "Find components" mode, you are given the magnitude and direction of the vector, and your goal is to find the x-component and the y-component of the vector.  In the "Find magnitude and direction" mode, you are given the two components, and you need to find the magnitude and direction of the vector.

The Vector Components was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_bu_vector_components.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
